After much speculation it has been confirmed that Glee’s final season will consist of 13 episodes.
Following the show’s falling ratings, it had been reported that creator Ryan Murphy was in talks with FOX about the number of episodes for the final season. Originally the show was set to have 22 episodes but that order has been cut by nearly half to 13.
The 13-episode sixth and final season will air uninterrupted but will not debut in the autumn as per previous seasons. Instead the show will return mid-season meaning fans have to wait until 2015 for new episodes.
Recently it was confirmed that Naya Rivera who plays Santana in the show has been downgraded from a series regular to a recurring star for the final season. The news followed reports of on-set bust-ups with co-star Lea Michele and the official line is that Rivera requested the downgrade.
